Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: In "I Know What You Diddly-Iddly Did", there are a few errors: Homer says, "Guess I forgot to put the fog lights in" at a slightly higher pitch to when we heard him say it earlier (When the event actually happened). When Marge actually ran over Ned she did not carry on driving. The flashback shows that Ned was run over without glasses. However in the actual event he had glasses on.
